Lexington Democratic Committee meets August 27

The regular bimonthly meeting of the Lexington Democratic Committee will be held on Monday August 27 at 5:30 p.m. at Democratic Headquarters in Lexington, 11 South Jefferson Street.

New members are welcome.

Can you canvass for our 2018 Democratic candidates?

On August 4 we had an excellent kickoff to our joint Lexington/Rockbridge County Democratic canvass for the 2018 election– featuring our terrific candidate for Congress, Jennifer Lewis.

Now we need to keep up that momentum until the November 6 election.

Every study of campaign tactics shows that personal contact with folks through door-to-door canvassing is by far the most effective way to reach, persuade and turn out voters.

Between now and Election Day, Democratic Headquarters in Lexington (11 South Jefferson Street) will be open every Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon for volunteers who want to pick up canvassing turf packets and to return completed packets. Turfs are available throughout Lexington, Rockbridge County and Buena Vista. You may choose your own territory.

You may also choose between canvassing voters identified as Strong Democrats for the Democratic Party’s Coordinated Campaign for Tim Kaine and Jennifer Lewis (to make sure they know about the election and turn out), or canvassing voters identified as Leaning Democratic and Independent for the Jennifer Lewis Campaign.

If you have any questions, please contact Gene Zitver at gzitver@gmail.com.
